UNC Football Recruiting: Four-star wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman places North Carolina in his top 12

Can the Tar Heels land wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman?

Student Sports

After decommitting from the University of Michigan in February, 2017 wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman reopened his recruitment. This decision allowed North Carolina to move in and they offered him a scholarship back in May. On Wednesday, the four-star recruit narrowed his schools down to 12 after sifting through nearly 50 different scholarship offers. Those schools include Tennessee, Miami, Georgia, Penn State, Notre Dame, Auburn, Michigan State, LSU, Oklahoma State, University of Southern California, Oregon, and UNC.

The six-foot-two, 185-pound wide receiver ranks 153rd in the national composite, while ranking 23rd at his position and 19th in his home state of Georgia. Scout.com says “he has excellent body control and can adjust to the ball in the air or on the ground.” Holloman is also praised for his a abilities as a receiver, working inside or outside, catching short passes and going the distance, or getting behind the defense to catch the ball deep.

Despite already having two wide receivers for the class of 2017, the Tar Heels could still use the addition of Holloman. If he were to commit to Chapel Hill, he would join three-star recruits JT Cauthen and Tyler Smith at the position. Considering he is from Georgia and was previously set to attend Michigan, proximity to home might not be a factor for him, unless that was the reason he decided to decommit.

Currently, 247 Sports’ crystal ball claims there is a 94% chance he will choose Georgia. Since getting an offer from them in March, Holloman has taken several unofficial visits to their campus and even attended Bulldogs camp. Tennessee is another school that has been recruiting him hard. If the Tar Heels want to land him, they will have to pull out all the stops.
